9:01am
details on your weekend forecast in just a minute. back up stairs to both of you. >> all right. thank you very much. we begin with breaking news this morning involving the deadly gulf oil spill back in 2010. bp will pay billions of dollars as part of a settlement. a person familiar with the case also says that two bp employees will face manslaughter charges. you'll recall that 11 people died in the explosion and millions of gallons of oil tainted the gulf leading to a ban on deep water drilling. >> we're also following breaking news closer to home. a swat team is called to a tomorrow in district heights. >> melanie is live at the scene with the very latest. what's happening? >> reporter: good morning. there's still more than a dozen fbi agents and support staff here. you can see over there the house we're focusing on is
9:02am
6709 kipling parkway. and there's agents up around the corner too. looks like they may be beginning to wrap up the investigation. i saw them bringing bags of items out the front door of the house. this unfolded around 6:30 this morning. neighbors told me they heard two loud bangs. we're not clear if that was the sound of gunshots or the door of the house being kicked in. we are told fbi agents were serving some sort of a warrant. one person inside the home was shot. we believe that person may be the female. they do say they do not have an update on that person's condition. they also say that no fbi agents were injured in this incident as well. so that is the latest we can tell you. we don't know what kind of a warrant that was being served. another thing we saw, we went around the other
9:03am
side of the neighborhood towards the back of this house that's cordoned off and we saw agents bringing a young man out of the back of the house as well. he was not in custody but he did not look like he was pleased to be going off with fbi agents. the best we can say is this investigation is continuing. no fbi agents have been injured. but one person in the home ended up being shot by someone in the fbi. of course there needs to be a thorough and complete investigation. that is the latest here, back to you. >> all right. thank you. >> a deadly shooting in east river dale maryland. the gunfire erupted around 7:30 last night. investigators say a woman allowed a deputy into the home and then while talking with her, a man appeared with a gun. the deputy shot the unidentified

9:05am
addressed the on going controversy. four americans were killed including u.s. ambassador chris stevens. several republicans are calling for a water gate style hearing and much of the anger has focused on susan rice. the u.s. ambassador for the united nations. >> for them to go after the un ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to smerch her reputation is outrageous. >> the american people deserve the facts. the american people need to know why was the security so inadequate despite two previous attacks on that facility. what did the president know? when did he know it and what did he do about it? >> ambassador rice's remarks will not affect nomination as
9:06am
secretary of state. >> also former cia director david patraeus will testify at a closed door hearing on the libra attack tomorrow. there will be no cameras allowed. only about libya and not about the sex scandal involving paula b he expects the patraeus resignation will also be addressed during the libya hearings when they happen. we have learned the army has suspended paula broadwell's security clearance. she is a former army intelligence officer and we can tell you that fbi special agent frederick finds himself. he took the case to the republicans when he thought it was being stalled for political reasons. his claim is unjustified. played a key roll in stopping a terrorist attack
9:07am
aimed at blowing up lax back in 2000. there is speculation that susan rice could be nominated to become the next secretary of state. republican leaders are vowing to block that nomination. >> all right. wisdom martin. thank you. >> in the meantime more deadly violence in the mid east. militants hit back and killed three israelis today. the deaths of the first in israel since it launched an operation with the assassination of a cop commander. that was followed by on slot of airstrikes by tanks and naval gun belts. two children and 7 militants were killed. and a storage unit was destroyed. the founder of the software company mcaffee says he is in hiding fearing for his life. john is a person of interest in the murder of his neighbor. he
9:08am
was found inside his home with a gun shot wound to the head over the weekend. police say they want to question mcaffee but he says police want to kill him. he admits the two had their difference. >> i did not kill him. good lord. i just can't concede in myself doing anything like this. if i'm a suspect, why are they arresting my friends? why did they army caretaker, my housekeeper. my security guard. >> this is not mcafee's first one in with the law. earlier this year police raided his home after he was accused holding firearms most of which were found to be licensed. >> new this morning a delay in the trial of james holmes, the accused gunman in the movie theater massacre in colorado. he was supposed to appear in court toy but a judge granted

9:15am
place. >> right. that's absolutely changing and it's exciting to see that. >> i love that. one web site said there's a triple fashion threat from the white house. talk about what's going on at the white house with regard to style. >> yeah. michelle obama has been in the fashion spotlight for some time now. but with president obama serving another four years and the first daughters are a little bit older, we're definitely going to see more of what they are wearing and paying attention to the designers. >> it's funny because this is election night and this is the family on stage here. and i must say, i love those outfits those girls have on. and i did take notice. >> sasha wore a gorgeous skirt. but they are known for wearing more affordable pieces. and that skirt she wore on election night was worn by malia at a state dinner in 2011. rerare pieces and hand them down.
9:16am
>> we were showing pictures of the obamas out and about. you can see some of the fashion forward thinking we're talking about. one thing i like about it is they are still relatively young. 14 and 11. they are not dressed too grown for their age or too flirty. but it's trendy and age appropriate. how do they capture that and really how can all of us do that? >> yeah. absolutely. what they do really well and they take after their mother. is they are not afraid of color. they'll wear bright pops of color whether it's in the belt or a bright blue coat. and i love the a-line skirts they wear a lot. so playing with patterns. it's very fun. >> we just took the picture down. i was going to ask you. there you go. the belts. the first lady -- we see there malia she has the belt there.
9:17am
and sasha with that v neck. rebecca tailor the designer says malia was that perfect fashion plate. she's tall. so how do we all sort of achieve that too? are there style tips you can pass along? >> yeah, i think it would be not afraid to tricol or. not afraid to mix colors. color blocking is a really easy way to achieve that fashion forward but still put together looks. definitely dc people can achieve that. that's not too far out. and just have fun with it. definitely. >> looking tattoo. you mentioned the first lady you can see her stamp on those outfits. is it like miniature first ladies. is that how you would classify it? >> in some respects but they still look so youthful. they can do a lot more with it. i would say it looks like they put their own spin on it.
9:18am
i'm hoping they had their own spin. >> i have three girls. they will tell you what they don't want to wear. before you say their people still dress people, they still have to wear it. before we let you go, i know the belt in one of those outfits was from zara. what are other stores? >> anthropology is great. i love h&m. forever 21. >> so mixing and matching. absolutely. if you have a higher end piece designer that is classic. pair it with a trender more affordable piece. work really well together. >> did we get toyour notes? did i miss something? >> yeah: . >> good. she is the owner and editor of so much to smile about. that is the dc fashion and instyle web site. thank you for talking to us. >> absolutely. >> tony, over to you. >> thank you very much.

9:51am
when we did ice last year. you and i were very large. we had more padding. >> we did. both of us were expecting. >> we were both pregnant at this time last year. >> i'm not sure that was you and me. okay. there we are. very pregnant. i had had entwo weeks later. you had caleb about a month and a half later. here's the real gift. bring them on over. >> this is my little boy. >> he is in his own little ice parka. all bundled up. is this the best gift you've ever gotten? >> it is. this will be his first christmas. >> hayden was going to be here but he has a terrible cold and ear infections. i thought i was a good parent to not bring him. but there he is.
9:52am

9:53am
and we have to give a shout out to the guys at kettering shopping center. they watch you loyally. >> good morning. >> i told them i'd give them a shout out. >> here's the deal. what usually ends up happening at this time of the year is we put our plants to bed and throw the tools in the back of the shed and that's it. what can happen is you can end up getting rust and other things that will accumulate over the winter and that's not good. especially with your hand pruners and your shove en. i have this shovel and i've soaked it. it's a good idea to presoak it. >> what is this water? >> it's water. get any of the
9:54am
access dirt off of the shove en. and take a couple paper towns. you want to make sure it's dry. get back down to the metal. get any of the dirt off. you can take a little bit of the spray or motor oil. work that in. you can do that with your shove en, your pruners, anything that's metal that could rust over the winter. what i like to do is i like to store this. and the reason for that is over the winter the oil will start to dissipate. i like to store it in a bag. you use a regular tie once you've got everything in there. tie this up. keep it tight and
9:55am
it's going to prevent rust and when you open it up, you are going to have tools just as you left them. >> excellent. >> how about our planters? we've got wonderful decorative planters. what ends up happening is moisture condenses between the planters because we double stack them. if you see here, this planter is showing signs of stress from a freeze. it's going to fall apart. one quick way you can take care of that. take paper towels. it's going to wick the water away. so when you store planters. don't do this outside . out of the elements taking sure you have this paper between them.
9:56am
it's going to constantly aid in eliminating any excessive moisture. >> we're out of time. >> the big thing about the soils, anything that's compost, use it now. don't store it. it will make mold . and all of your fertilizers do not reuse fertilizers that have any type of a combination. things like pure lime you can store that. but any combination fertilizer, better to start new. >> thank you so much. thomas landscape. follow us on twitter. >> we'll be right back. . alalright let's break it down.
